Talk about a fall from grace:

ESPN - Offerman charged with assault for bat attack

    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Former major league All-Star Jose Offerman was charged with two counts of second-degree assault after hitting the pitcher and catcher with his bat during an independent minor league game.

    Offerman posted $10,000 bond and is due in Bridgeport Superior Court on Aug. 23, court officials said Wednesday.

    Offerman, playing for the Long Island Ducks in the Atlantic League, homered in the first inning. The next inning, he was hit by a pitch from Bridgeport's Matt Beech and charged the mound with his bat.

Man, I grew up with Offerman during his Dodger years. I actually thought he was off having a happy retirement. I definitely didn't expect to see him having a Marty McSorley moment. It's a damn shame.

Buy Kanye West's "Graduation" (The W at Amazon) and YOU can help send 50 Cent into retirement (and put some money into The W while you're at it)!

Seriously, you'd hope there would be something more to provoke this than getting hit.. in the shin.. with a breaking ball. Otherwise among baseball people, I'd guess Offerman goes out remembered as a stinkin' coward. Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt, and apparently no great career is jeopardized. Beech was 8-22, 5.37 (thanks, in parts of three seasons for the Phils about a decade ago.

None of which will stop the lawsuits...

It's the Big "W", I tell ya! The Big "W"!

That was my immediate thought. It also seems like an incredibly odd way to solve the problem of competitive imbalance.
